Day (or two or three) old Sourdough Bread
One of my favorite tricks to use up bread that is a tad past fresh is to make French Toast. Sourdough bread makes excellent French Toast. Every bit as good as using Texas Toast. You will need just a handful of ingredients, including one that is optional.
Gather the following kitchen equipment before you start: a spatula, frying pan, glass or metal dish, measuring cup and a fork. Non-porous pie plates work great!
From the refrigerator and pantry grab the following ingredients-milk, egg, butter, sourdough bread and the optional cinnamon.

The easy step by step directions and photos make this a good recipe for beginner cooks. If you are a pro feel free to skip straight to the recipe.
In a glass dish large enough to fit bread slices, mix the egg and the milk. Add the cinnamon.
Soak each slice of bread in the egg/milk mixture.
Melt butter in the frying pan over a medium low temperature. Do not let butter burn. Place the soaked Sourdough Bread for the French Toast into the frying pan. Turn the slices once the bottom is browned. Make sure both sides are browned, and the mixture is thoroughly cooked.
Serving the Sourdough Bread French Toast
The French Toast can be served with your favorite eggs and/or breakfast meat. A variety of toppings add a finishing touch. Try any of the following or a combination: fresh fruit, powdered sugar, maple syrup or my personal favorite a spoonful of homemade jam or jelly. Enjoy!
1 Cup of Whole Milk (Low Fat may be substituted)
2 Slices of Sourdough Bread
1-2 Tbs of Butter, melted
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
French Toast Recipe
